pickled fish

Pickled fish is a Cape favourite that fills kitchens with the aroma of curried onions and bay leaves on Good Friday. But if you want to skip the process (and the 2–3 days of fridge time) enjoy Woolworths’ ready-made version. If you really want to make it yourself, that recipe is here, too.

Firm yellowtail is perfect for pickled fish, but hake or any other firm white fish works as well.

Cook’s note: An old Cape recipe, with a few additions and subtractions, this meal is best left for two or three days to allow the fish to absorb the flavours.
